I was using the boxed banana bread mix to make my banana bread. I thought it was as good as you could get, until my neighbor Glenda brought me a loaf of her banana bread. Yum! Yum! I've been making it ever since. Some of my boys don't like nuts, so I leave them out. I think you could probably use walnuts or pecans instead of peanuts.
2C self-rising flour
½ C Crisco
1 C sugar
1 ½ C mashed bananas
1 C chopped peanuts
2 eggs, beat and add 1 at a time
Preheat oven to 350. Mix Crisco and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs. Stir in bananas and flour. Bake for about 1 hour. Cool on a wire rack and then wrap up and store in refrigerator. Let come to room temperature before serving.
